There's a waiting list!? I thought there'd just be a 2nd or 3rd round like there was last year.

Fingers crossed!

Using a combination of texts, IMs and FB to make sure friends Oslo are ok after a terrorist attack. This may be the future, but all the edges seem to expose themselves when all you really want is to know that someone is safe.

I cannot imagine there's anyone following me that's not aware of Casanova, but you never know. Anyway, there's a 6pp preview here: http://aol.it/qpVVqy

If you're about to hit that little +1 button (and really, why wouldn't you?) do me a favor and hit the "share" link, instead, yeah? I already know Matt's great, so help me spread the word. ^_^

Made a playlist of some garage rock and punk that I enjoy that has Nashville/Detroit influences, plus some nice dirty country-inspired songs. Love that Rdio.

I'd Photoshop out that green square on the newspaper.

For +Ben Tomassetti (and others who said they were interested) here's that excellent presentation that +Kevin Slavin did at Momo Amsterdam, "Reality Is Plenty, Thanks."

Google+ I love you, but I wish you'd stop calling this a "field trial" - real field trials involve more than a single candidate.

+Ryan Freitas I suspect their intention was to make it sound more ominous than "beta", which people have eventually adapted to simply meaning "available, but less than 10 years old".

Things about mobile devices that I've learned while having to use them with one hand while my infant son sleeps cradled on my other arm:

1. Typing out emails with one thumb is tedious. Spellcheck is overzealous and honestly requires more retyping than it saves.

2. Among mobile devices, the Kindle (I use a 3rd gen) has far and away best combination of weight and size for the single-handed user. On +Ted Rheingold's suggestion I've been reading "Brain Rules for Baby," which is utterly fascinating/fantastic.

3. Both the iPad and iPad 2 are still both too heavy to use with one hand over a lengthy period of time. Gestures suck when you have to put the device down to make the simplest thing happen (e.g. "next page" - thanks, Kindle!)

4. An open laptop on the couch beside you, with one hand free to hunt, peck and mouse around still tops most other devices for sheer functionality and ease of use. Which I think is kind of sad.

I have seen these tragically uncool jackets that have an integrated front pocket that zips out to hold your iPad like a table in front of you. Guess some people are more tethered than others.

Someone should tell those poor Diaspora kids they can stop now.
